Canavan and Murnaghan are good prospects but this year is too soon for them

Dissapointed Donaghy hasn't got a chance. He couldn't have done any worse than say, Ronan Oneill or Conall McCann. Donaghy full of confidence just now, it was a perfect opportunity to try him out. Management seem unimaginative, rigid and stubborn

Is McBrearty is available for the championship game?

Agree with other posters on here. It's time to play hampsey, mattie and mckenna in their best positions, and let the midfielders in the squad at least compete in that area.
Mattie and Hampsey are not that effective in there, and its reducing the affectiveness of the team overall without them in the defence and attack

Free taking still an issue as well. 10years now we are addressing the same issues
0-2 very straightforward points missed. One from mccurry and one from oneill. A third scorable free you'd also expect to get

Donegal in contrast scored 7 from 7

Potentially a brilliant weekend of football ahead, but the county boards etc haven't done much to promote the games. Still no team or squad news

Reality is as there is no gate money they ain't bothered.

Normally it's nice to come in under the radar, but I think on this occasion whoever wins the league match will also be victorious in the championship in a fortnight's time

Hugh was an absolute diamond.

A genuinely inspirational man. He espoused all the great traits, character and integrity we strive and search for as gaels and irishmen.

It's unfortunately not as simple as that RadioGAAGAA

It pretty needs to be looked at that simply - either make international connections digital or run a strong risk of reintroducing the thing en mass to the population. Neither are good options, which is least worse?

And what about our specialized manufacturing industry where we need to send highly trained technical engineers to commission and set up the equipment that is being exported?

Really specialised equipment can't be commissioned by a sub-contractor.  The complex equipment we sell and manufacture cannot be commissioned by someone who hasn't been with us for a number of years.  What will happen is that if we can't commission it we will lose sales as foreign customers will purchase from a competitor who can attend site.  This wouldn't be good for NI businesses and exporting companies who fall into this (probably small) subset of exporters). 
I guess this is the challenge that the Powers that Be face.  Totally closing down international links would really hammer the economy of a country, so they are trying to walk a tightrope.

It'd need to be done remotely and/or by bringing in subcontractors that are near where the gear is being setup. I know that's really crap and will mean a long slow laborious process which pleases no-one when compared to the norm... but that is still lightyears better than more shutdowns.

A real tightrope as you say, but surely a Govt exemption system could be put in place with approved firms and a tangible trackable quarantine system in place guaranteeing self isolation on return. Ie if individual breaks quarantine, the firm loses approved status

It could be done.
External travel really needs to be hammered & driven down, albeit we cannot completely close off. Aviation industry sacrafice is a price worth paying

Thanks Rois, I suppose I hoped that because the site wasn't in construction, the tax wouldnt apply
But its fairly clear in that info you posted

My understanding is that there is still 3 % surcharge for second homes.

Hi, can someone advise me please if you have to allow for stamp duty on buying a building site?

Site has full planning permission, however construction has not yet started. Based in the North.

I own my current residence, so in essence does a building site constitute a second home?

Yes the other 5 were also named

Thanks for that Boycey, I'll play around with it today and test different options

Have two iptv subs, and whilst one may occasionally suffer from the epl block I've never had both go down at the same time until Friday. There has obviously been a concerted attempt by the epl and the big isp's to disrupt the streams.

Invested in a VPN yesterday and it seems to have done the trick. Hopefully all good for the Merseyside Derby later

For those of you using a VPN, what country do select when streaming live football?

Almost 45% of positive tests in June, in the North, occurred in an area which is occupied by 8% of the population

Something surely up here?

Confirmed cases/P1 tests, *last 72h*:

Antrim/Newtownabbey 0/115
Ards/North Down 7/201
Armagh B&C 1/266
Belfast 2/601
Causeway C&G 0/171
Derry/Strabane 0/187
Fermanagh/Omagh 0/178
Lisburn/Castlereagh 3/215
Mid/East Antrim 0/122
Mid Ulster 0/178
Newry M&D 0/142
Non-assigned 1/105

Info stole from twitter (Ian Parsley) but it seems the case figures in the North are centred around Ards and North Down Council areas.
Very frustrating we don't have more information on these cases, are there clusters or patterns that the rest of us could learn from?
Also if we were to eradicate the problem in Ards and North Down we would be in a great position

The current testing "setup" is a load of shite.

Relative of the missus had symptoms. Eventually got tested in a centre a week ago after haggling to avoid a home kit that would no doubt have been used incorrectly*. No word back after several days. Numerous calls later, turns out they don't know where the test is and the relative isn't on the system. Even if it had worked, your still waiting a couple of days for results. That is far too slow.

*I wonder how many are getting sent home kits then doing incorrect tests that yield incorrect results. As usual, public services taking the f**king easy way out even if it means no clear picture of reality. From what I've been told of how the tests are performed - a home test kit is essentially worse than useless (assuming you've got it in the absence of a result is better than going about your business on the back of a false negative) as the samples will not have been taken from where they need to be.

I wasn't aware of the home testing going on. Anyone I know who has got tested (mid ulster area) travelled to Antrim hospital for a drive thru test.
